3:01 am
>> steve: look at that. peter: you have to see the video. julian assange is back and so is steve doocy. >> steve: it is fox & friends for the tuesday. it feels like a monday after new year's eve. >> did you stay up till midnight, i want to know. we have an exciting program. the king of 7:00 p.m. joining us live. we will talk about the news the day. >> laura engram is joining us this morning. peter: with all the football being played not a morning
3:02 am
without bobby who is going to join us as well. >> steve: she's going to join us and we are going to play some vintage fox & friends clip plus abby has interesting gossip about maria osman but there's a family connection that i had never heard. by the way, we should point out 15 seconds before the telecast started. the guy over there was pulling a mariah carey, i muffled. >> if you showed up to rehearsal, it might have worked out for you. >> that's true. [laughter] >> you can hear. >> i can hear. >> i don't want to hear it's sabotaged later. peter: we will see how it goes.
3:03 am
>> democrats are saying that the republicans sabotaged and hacked in, russians did to throw the election at donald trump. tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern time sean hannity sits down with person interview to julian assange, he flew over to london. assange's hold-up at embassy and there's a warrant for arrest in sweden. sean asked him specifically, was it russia behind it? was it, was it? this is what he said? >> can you say to the american people that you did not get this information about the dnc john podesta emails, can you tell the american people a thousand percent you did not get it from russia or anybody associated with russia? >> we can say, we have said repeatedly over the last few months that our source is not
3:04 am
the russian government and it is not state parties. >> very definitive. >> with a thousand percent surety that it's not russia behind the election hacking. peter: this is the source of dnc emails, was wikileaks which released them drip by drip to great frustration to democrats and hillary clinton, but if he's saying it wasn't the russian government, then, i think, that is a voice we have to listen to whether you like julian assange or not, whether you like wick lakes -- wikileaks or not. >> five or six days ago while on holiday, homeland security came out but was only five pages but what was curious it had a disclaimer, did not claim to be accurate and the second thing is it did not mention wikileaks which is curious, julian assange was on this program a couple of months ago and he also
3:05 am
reiterated it was not from russia, it was not a hack, it was a leak, somebody from the inside, somebody probably at the dnc, this is just speculation and i'm connecting dots, but probably somebody that the dnc was for hillary and they were probably for bernie sanders. >> the big question still remains why is president obama doing this now when he had the information 18 months ago and also what is the purpose of this? why are they blaming russia for this if that is not the case, that's exactly what sean hannity asked and here is how he respond today that question. >> the u.s. government is accusing wikileaks of having received materials from russia and you say it's false, it did not come from russia and the president of the united states is advancing the narrative, is the president of the united states lying to the american people?
3:06 am
>> he's acting like a lawyer. >> russia was trying to influence u.s. elections. >> and you also note that he doesn't say from the statements that i've read, he doesn't say that russia was trying influence >> in the media we see election hacking, leading people to believe that the election was hacked. what he's saying the parsed words of barack obama also, they can drive a truck to the explanation and gives them -- >> what they're trying to do is they as donald trump comes in cloud the water, moody -- muddy the water.
3:07 am
>> this is their attempt to undermine his legitimacy, the fact that he didn't actually win on his own merit. that's what julian assange is saying. he knows something, mr. trump that no one else knows still that's supposed to come out today, maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe about the hacking situation, it could be, steve, about something completely different, who knows. >> it could be. also know that it would be easy for julian assange to say we got the documents from so and so. that would just end it. if you're in the leaking business and you give somebody up -- >> if you give up your source, but again tonight on hannity is when the full interview is going to air. >> exactly, 10:00 p.m., your
3:08 am

3:10 am
shop, you break it, you own it. this is their dealing with something that's very -- when i say complex, it's sophisticated. [laughter] peter: she said it's sophisticated. the same woman when selling it, we need to pass it so we can find out what's in it. just pass it. then we will find out. now it turns out it's so sophisticated that commoners like us can't understand. >> the american people hate it and most of americans would like to see it repealed and replaced and that's the intention for republicans and donald trump. republicans will leave millions of americans without health insurance and worsen the coverage of many more and that simply according to republicans is not true. they're going to fix it, they're not -- there's so many problems with it the way it is, republicans say they have heard
3:11 am
the cries for help and they will fix it. >> all nancy pelosi is have to do is travel the countries and talking to your everyday americans about what they think about obamacare. they will give her the real answer. what i will say, though, it is complex, when we talk about our healthcare system. mr. trump is going to have the challenge and we should give the opportunity to figure it out. what we have is not working, it's not working. >> the bureaucrats say you need us to tinker it. [laughter] >> things like donald trump talks about letting you go through different states and compete, the free market is an answer to a lot of things. i want to put the tweet up. she says republicans will leave millionsover americans without health insurance, you mean like the health insurance they lost when you gave them obamacare? what about the worsening the coverage of those who don't have coverage or can't get coverage
3:12 am

3:13 am
detained, the only american that was shot is now home and speaking out about he played -- how he played dead in order to survive, listen. >> all i can say it's massive strategy. this is very unfortunate, i don't want to talk about what happened inside the club, i was with nine people. seven of us were shot. >> turkish media reporting that the video showing the killer escaping in a cab and fail to go pay his fair before trying to hitch a ride. custom computers back here at home are back online this morning after a nationwide outage sparks mayhem across the country, take a look at this time lapse video from atlanta's jackson airport. one of the busiest in the long, lock lines after people return home from overseas, they had to be processed by hand and then tempers flaring in miami where lines stretched a quarter of a mile and people start today lose their patience. the computer outage lasted about four hours. custom says there's no

3:18 am
went up. that's the change in chicago, no investment in communities, no investment in education, no investment in vocational programs, youth programs that anyone can feel on the ground anyway, but no real change, it's really sad. >> here is what mr. trump tweeted about yesterday, he said, chicago murder rate is record-setting 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murderers in 2016 alone, if mayor can't do it, he must ask for federal help. i'm asking you, you've been a life-long democrat, you've switched your party this time around, voted for president-elect trump, what is your thought on his tweet there? >> well, what i would say is this, if federal help is needed and you know, i'm very happy that mayor ron emmanuel is open to having the president elect
3:19 am
come in and be of help, what i think president obama should do, he should get behind the president elect like never before and i believe the president elect said he will get counsel from obama sometimes and help the president elect do what he couldn't do. helping our inner cities and americans. >> you look at the numbers and staggering. what happened in the past eight years? how did it get so wrong? >> i tell you this, when you have people who are not getting the proper education, when you you have made promises of hope and change with jobs and vocational programs that never came, people sat on life support literally waiting for a change, waiting for jobs and education.
3:20 am
and so we have got to do something. the president elect has made a deal. >> we have to leave it there. sad reality. good to see you this morning, though. >> god bless you. >> up next remember when donna brazile said this. >> i denounce donald trump for not denouncing the violence that he has perpetrated. >> donna brazile saying the dems deserve a seat at the trump table, what do republican voters think about that? liberals celebrating higher than minimum wages but you won't go after it's hitting your wallet.

3:26 am
at the table? >> i think that i think is most important that we pay attention to is that the democrats still haven't come to terms with what just happened, americans around the world said, we want change, we are respond to go donald trump's message of deals of coming together, of repealing executive action and saying that we have to make things happen, we want government to work for us, not for special interest. >> sure. >> we will work with donald trump if he reaches out to us, and that's exactly what the american people don't want. they want a government that's working on behalf of them. steve: the people of the united states spoke and donald trump won fair and square h. >> he did. steve spheef if the democrats as is suggested, you know, our news people down in washington, they have the stories about how the democrats are trying to blow seven or eight of donald trump's nominees for cabinet, that
3:27 am
sounds like they're going to be obstructionist. that's not going to be good for them. >> they are really promising gridlock. steve: that's not what people want. >> he says he's going to have big actions but he also says that he's going to compromise. that's part of his language and message. steve: sure. >> they won the election. they have to understand, the democrats, it's not just the presidency that they lost, they lost the senate and house and they have to understand that they have to have a message on what they're going to do, not on what they're going to do. this isn't an antitrump message or anything message, they have to understand on what they are going to do for the american people and policies. steve: we know what donna brazile has done. she cheated because she fed questions. she lost her job at the dnc.

3:46 am
judge napolitano: there is a provision in the constitution that allows the president to make recess appointments to federal jobs that require him to appoint the person on the senate to confirm, recess meaning the senate is in recess. the supreme court has said the senate decides when it could recess except for today when the old senate ends at exactly noon and the new senate begins one second after noon, one minute after noon. he would have to time this with perfection. this has happened in the past but not with the supreme court. we had justices in the supreme court given recess appointments when the senate was in recess and months later they were confirmed. was appointed by president eisenhower in 1956, took a seat immediately, no hearings or investigation, then while a
3:47 am
sitting justice it was confirmed in 1957. the fear that some people have is president obama, one last slap at president-elect trump and the electorate that made donald trump the president-elect would do something like this which would put judge garland or someone in the supreme court for two years. that would mean -- not for life. he would have to give up his life tenure on the united states court of appeals below the supreme court. >> would he want to do that? judge napolitano: i don't think so. >> if not confirmed in two years president-elect trump give it to somebody else. judge napolitano: two years is the term of the senate that begins at noon today, and the term of the appointed and the supreme court justice with that term. pete: if the president is in the oval office with the atomic
3:48 am
clock, signs it right then, that would effectively be what teddy roosevelt did 168 times. judge napolitano: before the atomic clock. barack obama has had a lot of problems with recess appointments. he made three recess appointments to the national labor relations board which made rulings against companies and those companies that this wasn't the real national labor relations board because these people weren't confirmed by the senate but the senate was not in recess when he made the appointment to the supreme court said 9-0 according to his two appointees voted against it, the senate decides when it is in recess except for today when senate term concludes at noon. pete: if he did this supreme court decisions might not be valid? judge napolitano: no. if he did this, he would be adding one more justice to the supreme court. the supreme court is not actually sitting or making
3:49 am
rulings. abby: what happens from here with mister trump in office? judge napolitano: he has indicated he hopes to name of the person he is going to nominate to replace justice scalia before he is sworn in. in two weeks we may know who that is. he is expecting to have additional seats to fill. pete: watch "outnumbered" today at noon. judge napolitano: what is this, so fantastic the time it. abby: are you on call for this? >> i will be ready. pete: happy new year. we have a huge show that can't get bigger than the judge. tucker carlson and karl rove join us. abby: donald trump made this a household phrase. >> you are fired go. abby: there is a new boardroom

4:05 am
leaks did not come from the russians. >> can you say to the american people unequivocally you did not get this information about the dnc, john podesta emails, can you tell the american people 1000% you did not get it from russia or anybody associated with russia? >> yes. we can say, we have said repeatedly over the last two months, that our source is not the russian government and it is not state parties. steve: if it wasn't the russian government and it wasn't a hack it, would have been a leak from probably somebody inside of the dnc. >> we don't know is the point. assange, i haven't seen the whole interview, it airs tonight, but assange in previous interviews, he said he had not even been contacted by intelligence agencies looking into the story from the united states. nobody even asked him from the u.s. government which is kind of remarkable since it was through wikileaks this information became public. tough ask yourself, if he is
4:06 am
lying what's the point of his lying? julian assange is a man of the left. he is not an ally of donald trump. he went on to say in the interview with sean he believes the purpose of all this story is to delegitimatize trump. why would he be acting on trump's behalf? what is his motive for doing that? i don't see he has one. we're missing part of the story. you noticed perhaps a number about journalists on the left, andrew coburn at harper's or glean greenwald at intertent, wait a second there is no evidence russia was behind this. are they tools of the kremlin? a lot of sober people who have no motive to lie do we really know putin was behind this? the answer was we don't know it. steve: tucker, you're talking motives. who is doing what and why. >> yeah. steve: how in competing motives, who it actually is? is it congressional committee, white house, intelligence finally released to the public. how do we get to a point where
4:07 am
we have certainty, not speculation? >> that is great question. the stakes are so high. this story delegitimatized the election in the minds of many voters. no matter who you voted for that is bad news. catherine herridge reported last night sometime before president-elect trump's inauguration on the 20th, we're apparently going to see declassification of some of the evidence collected by intelligence agencies either prove or disprove this allegation that the russian government was behind this i think that is necessary. that would be a without a lot of precedent. they don't normally do that. we deserve some voters at backup here. the idea we're assured by anonymous sources in the press we know what happened, we all nod, of course we do, that is not good enough for a story of this magnitude. abby: we'll hear more of that tonight. part one of the exclusive interview is airing 10:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. be sure to tune in. get your thoughts, nancy pelosi,
4:08 am
pleading with republicans give obamacare, give it a second look. >> the fact is the old thing going into a china shop, you break it, you own it. and this is, they're dealing with something that is very, when i say, complex, it's sophisticated. pete: tucker so complex and sophisticated we need to protect it. >> actually they broke it and they own it. on party-line vote they passed it and are solely responsible for it. so what is the fear? if obama care is repealed or changed, premiums will go up? people will lose their doctors? the middle class will find itself bearing an unsustainable burden? that's already happened! this is insane. and you have to sort of wonder why in the six or seven years since this passed, why has it not, why is the president himself not conceded to the public, my signature legislation
4:09 am
hasn't worked as intended. let's try and fix it. he hasn't. vanity? i can't think of another explanation. they should have, they wouldn't be facing the problem if they done that. steve: pell pell -- nancy pelosi was busy tweeted. republicans will leave americans without health insurance and coverage for millions more. my daughter mary has obamacare. it is terrible. she hates it. >> of course it is terrible t was written by lobbyists. young people can buy a plan that suits them. we all should be able to. because of efforts of lobbyists mandates were packed in. they enriched people in washington, my neighbors, i can assure you that. that doesn't help the average person. why can i not choose a plan that meets my needs and i am not allowed to because of influence of lobbyists. pete: one democrat on the way out is president obama. we're not sure he will be fully

4:11 am
people instead of going to work and putting on suit and ties an uniforms going to pick up guns to feed their families and sell guns to feed their family. what i think president obama should do he should get behind the president-elect never before. help the president-elect do what he couldn't do, which is help our inner cities. abby: eight years later the president goes home to his city it's a sad, sad situation. >> well it is. it is a great city in a lot of ways if you're rich, nice place to live. murder rate, 56% rise last year. something is very wrong. it is badly-run city. chicago has $70 billion unfunded pension liabilities. that is not the state. that is just the city. that is fruit of bad management for decades. obama hasn't run chicago but people who funded his campaign, who began his political career
4:12 am
who he agrees with almost every issue has. nobody ever notes that. if you take ideas of the modern democratic party, apply them to a city wind up with a place like chicago. no one ever answers for that. pete: it is microcosm, unfunded liabilities, debt at federal level, support of "black lives matter" movement. that is -- steve: wouldn't this be a bigger mainstream story in the press if this were republican-led city. >> of course it would. it would be fair. if you had a city test case for your ideas, biosphere ii and took all your theories and applied them to people and waited 50 years, that would be fair to say this is referendum on your ideas. if you wound up with place like detroit, cleveland, toledo, there are other factors, liberal ideas, governing ideas are part of it, they all failed, it would be fair to say maybe you should reassess your ideas, wouldn't it? it would be.

4:24 am
they want to get rid of it with a different plan. look at democrats, 84-16, they want to keep obama care. key column you look at are the swing voters, by 3-2 they want to replace it. this is clear for the gop. they have about the 60 days to do it. the republicans who voted for donald trump are expecting action, on obamacare and they want it quick. steve: when you say 60 days is that from you or is that from the people because you also asked how long should the transition period be to replace obamacare? and i noticed that the biggest number here is at the bottom, 2%, about 30% of people say take as long as it is going to take to make it right? >> that is exactly the difference of the there is the repeal part, that they want to do quickly. the replace part, they're prepared to wait a year if you added it all up. half of americans will wait a year to make sure that it's done step by step. they don't want any mistakes.

remind people there have been a lot of things. you're in the watchdog business. you sounded the clarion caller to the last eight years but the legacy media, they're knot -- we reported on these things but unless you have got the mainstream media doing the story day after day, like the way they're doing this russian hacking thing, you just don't get, it just doesn't sink in. >> "fast & furious," for instance, hundreds of americans and mexicans have been killed with "fast & furious" guns. this president intervened personally to protect his attorney general, eric holder, at the time from having to answer questions to congress about this. hundreds of people dying as a result of obama administration program? that not scandal louse? come on. steve: how is that not a scandal. abby: tom, what will his legacy be? >> oh, his legacy will be one of abusive government, abusive power and presidency run amix. one of the reasons president
4:50 am
trump is going to be president is because of record of scandal valerie jarrett seems to think doesn't exist. steve: great point. abby: thanks for being with us this morning. happy new year, sir. >> you're welcome. pete: up next the story you won't anywhere else, the marie osmond's connection to the huntsman family. there she is. abby: looking as beautiful as ever.

5:01 am
steve: okay. so not russia. wait until what the wikileaks founder says about president obama and president-elect donald trump. pete: and remember when interim dnc chairman said this? >> donald trump will not denounce the kind of violence that he has perpetrated. steve: donna is also back and says the democrats should have a seat at the table. i think we'll have some opinions on that this morning. third hour of fox and friends and mornings are better with you. ♪ ♪ >> what a show we have had today, thank you for joining us live in new york city. laura joins us. and we were going to talk about the exclusive one-on-one interview that sean was going
5:02 am
to air tonight. first one up. >> okay. >> he tweeted 30 minutes ago. general motors is sending mexico made model of chevy cruz to u.s. car dealers make in usa or pay big border tax. what do you think of that? >> yeah. i think team trump is examining the options here for companies who have been pulling this type of trick now for some time. and look for this to be a theme that they hit in the 18, 17 days until the inauguration and then after that. so i think when people hear these stories about american companies going abroad and then getting that type of tax retreatment coming back into the country with a product that they make overseas, it just -- it royals people on the inside. i think. abby: yeah. >> people understand we need good paying manufacturing jobs in this country. we need to create an environment, which i think the trump team is working on doing
5:03 am
with tax reform, corporate tax reform and other incentives. so these companies to stay here of course there's going to be regulation. but not the type of choking regulation that is really hampering business development, business creation, and businesses thriving in this country. it's a winner issue across party lines, so i'm not surprised that they're hitting it today. steve: he's also tweeting this morning about obamacare. two tweets actually. the first is president-elect tweeting "people must remember that obamacare just doesn't work, and it's not affordable. 116% increases in arizona. bill clinton called it crazy and then in a second tweet, he's talking about the democratic governor of my home state mark who said famously the affordable care act obamacare is no longer affordable, and it is lousy health care. now, these tweets coming as congress maybe is looking at changes or tweaks to obamacare. even nancy pelosy hoping that republicans don't change it.
5:04 am
here's what nancy pelosy has said about republicans not changing obamacare, and then we want to get your thoughts on all of that. >> the fact is it's the old thing of going into a china shop. you break it, you own it. and this is -- they're dealing with something that is very -- economy say complex, it's sophisticated. >> the author of obamacare saying you break it, you own it. she owns it. >> i'm trying to even diagram that sentence. that's quite a presentation of subject, verb, direct object. nancy pelosy knows that this thing is going down. in the last gasp of the obama presidency, what they're trying to do is wholesale repeal it, which is going to take time and then replace it. and what the democrats will
5:05 am
do, and that was inartfully worded, but look at all of these people that got coverage. >> uh-huh. >> it's not perfect, but we can fix it. they want to burn it all down and then build it back up, which is not going to happen. and i think trump very smartly today with these tweets was trying to preempt what the democrats will do once they hit the gavel again and are back in session. a lot of folks make fun of the tweets. i think on this stuff, it's like a reddit top line. you don't need reddit when you have these tweets. trump says no. no. no. people have experienced these obscene out of pocket costs, huge premium increases, doctors are retiring, and these little bullet points are little triggers and reminders for people about what's happened when the government shoved through -- the obama government shoved through obamacare virtually no republican support. really -- speaking of going into a china shop, i wouldn't -- i used that analogy if i were nancy pelosi because there wasn't a piece of china left on the wall
5:06 am
after they got through with their so-called health care reform. abby: okay what are your thoughts on this? exclusive tonight at 10:00 p.m., flew down to ask him about the wikileaks. where they ultimately came from. here's how he responded. >> you say to the american people unequivocally that you did not get this information about the dnc, john's e-mails, can you tell the american people you did not get it from russia or anybody associated with russia? >> we can say -- we have said repeatedly over the last two months that our source is not the russian government, and it is not state party. am. abby: this comes a few days after the state gives president obama a slap on the wrist. what is going on here?
5:07 am
>> well, i think we have to be taking what julian with a grain of salt. i either have the first amendment trailblazer view of him or he's only a creepy, paranoid narcissist. i think those are the two polar views of julian. he's probably somewhere in the middle. i would say you don't have to get the information from the russian government to have the connection to the russian government. we know that putin does have hackers who are loosely connected to other groups who are connected to the russian government. now, i'm not saying we know that this was russia that did this. maybe it was, maybe it wasn't. when he says he didn't get it directly from -- do you think vladimir putin is stupid enough? here's what we want you to do, we have this information, and we want to give it to you. so if russia was really involved in this, they wouldn't deliver it to someone directly. it would go through webs and channels of other hacking cohorts, and then it would maybe, you know, get to them
5:08 am
that way. so i think you have to really listen carefully to what he's saying and not saying in that. so, again, i'm not on the trip -- first amendment trailblazer side of this or accused side of it. i think republicans should take this soberly, carefully. >> sure. >> but also understand that obama has a political reason trying to legitimize trump's first 100 days. abby: well said. steve: if the actual leaker were to come forward, that would settle all of that. let's talk about this. donna brazil, the debate cheater during the democrat town halls and whatnot, you know, she had said some incredibly things about donald trump. and yet, she wants a seat at the table for democrats in the
5:09 am
first 100 days and beyond. we want you to listen to this montage and then put into perspective what she's asking for now. listen to this. >> i denounce donald trump for not denouncing the kind of vitriol, the angry rhetoric. >> i play straight up with you. i did not receive any questions from cnn. and next time don't bring any e-mails into your system. don't bring nothing corrupt into me. >> give me all you said about this hack. do you think donald trump's win was legitimate? >> donald trump used this information in ways to also sew division. i was very disappointed in his repeated usage of some of the stolen information. he used it -- >> so is the election legit? >> the election was tainted by this intrusion.
5:10 am
. >> okay. >> based on her background and the fact that she leads an inherently partisan at the table. abby: that's how republicans felt eight years ago when barack obama came in and said, you know, we're going to do the stimulus and obamacare, and we're going to ram it through because remember nancy pelosi had a gavel, and she was going to use it. >> yeah. >> and they thought the gavel was going to hit the republican in the head so hard, it would never come back. eight years later suddenly -- oh, we want to sit at the table. i think one thing we do know is on some issues, trump is going to work with democrats. one of them is going to be trade. news coming out this morning that bob lightheiser will be named as the trade representative. which is a phenomenon pick, was led the trade team there, i used to work at scatten, i
5:11 am
know bob well. now, with trade, some of them will be able to work with donald trump. but for domes stick out their chest and say you have to give us your voice. they didn't give republicans their voice and then looked down on republicans. do you remember that sniffing that he hear with paul ryan in the front row seven or eight years ago? it's always these circumstances. >> we had judge napolitano on earlier this morning, and he reminded us of something that could happen today. a loophole. split second at noon. steve: that's right, however, the judge never worked at the supreme court. but you did. when the senate is out of session for just a couple of sessions, do you think barack obama will make a reassess appointment on garland? that's the suggestion on some of the internet. >> president obama is going to click his heel three times,
5:12 am
and he will go home again to this land of make believe. as cynical and as political i think and pejorative as president obama in many ways has been over the last couple of weeks, i don't even think he is capable of doing this. it would be so far out of the norm, it would not be upheld in the federal courts. i would highly doubt that he would do this. this is one of those fun fantasies keeping legal analysts in business i guess, but it's not going to happen. abby: mr. trump wants to appoint someone even before the inauguration on january 20th. do you think that's going to happen? >> i think that would be smart. why not? he has a list out, people like steve, allison, a lot of great people on that list. i don't think there's any harm in it. pete: laura, real quick, any predictions the first couple of days that you're hearing about? >> i think what you're going
5:13 am
to see is swift action on the news about building the wall, on corporate tax reform, on tax simplification and probably in the first 30 days, infrastructure, which we'll work with some of the democrats on. the question of democrats how trying to take pay for all of this and can we afford to do this without the booming economic growth that a lot of people is going to come about as a result of these policies. >> sure. abby: do you think it will get through? >> i do. he was the choice of james baker, so a lot of conservatives saying we like tellerson but what does that mean? are the bush's back again in foreign policy? steve: look at the time. lori, you have to go do your radio show. thank you. breaking political news you just heard about. president-elect donald trump filling in one of the final pieces of his senior team who he just named to his administration. we heard a little bit from
5:14 am
laura. we're going to hear next from the white house. abby: this is the video everyone is talking about this morning. a toddler being trapped by a falling dresser when his twin brother jumps in to save him. b you've got to see it to believe it. and if i can get comfortable talking about this kiester, then you can get comfortable using preparation h. for any sort of discomfort in yours. preparation h. get comfortable with it.

5:17 am
back to fox and friends, now 16 minutes after the hour. breaking news coming in from overseas right now. turkish media now reporting that they arrested at least two people in istanbul's main airport in connection with the nightclub massacre. they were stopped after agents searched their bags and their phone. this is a local newspaper says the gunman's wife claims that she had no idea that her husband was a terrorist and only learned about it from the attack on television. the two people reportedly moved from to your in november. back here at home, customs computers back had to know morning after a nationwide outage. sparks mayhem across the country. take a look at this time lapse video from jackson heartsville airport. one of the world's busiest. long lines folks returning home from overseas.
5:18 am
they had to be processed by hand. lines stretched at least a quarter of a mile long. the computer outage lasted about four hours. customs saying that there's no indication that the disruption was malicious. and those are your headlines. steve: terrible. >> so president-elect trump is hard at work, just 17 days now until inauguration. pete: trump's latest pick is robert for u.s. trade representative. >> live from the white house with more latest pick. doug, good morning. >> morning, steve. robert appears to be tailor made to trump's trade agenda. he has recently worked as a lawyer working in high-tech, manufacturing, and agricultural industries and previously served as u.s. trade representative in the reagan administration. upon the official announcement he said and i'm quoting now "i'm fully committed to president-elect trump's decision to level the playing field for american workers and
5:19 am
forge better trade policies that will benefit all americans." trump has made no secret throughout the campaign and the transition period as well that he is no fan of the north american trade agreement that he rejects the tpp, the transpacific partnership, and he wants to reject multilateral trade deals. and perhaps most controversially, he wants to punish with tariffs those countries that don't reconstructor the trade agreements. and in that sense, he's like-minded, the wall street journal said a piece about him that he has three decades of experience, arguing for punitive tariffs on overseas companies. so this is his opening gamut, and he's sticking to the campaign promises. back to you in new york. steve: doug live at the white house where it's not a very cheery day. abby: all caught on camera as the passenger goes on a flight
5:20 am
attendant on a plane full of people. watch this. >> so what set this guy off? that's straight ahead iraq and he's one of the most legendary football coaches of all time. joins us live to talk faith, family, and of course football. bobby, come on in. you're next on fox and friends.
5:21 am
5:22 am
5:23 am
steve: we've got quick headlines for you. first up, a united airlines passenger goes off on a flight
5:24 am
attendant all because he was mad about his chair. steve: whoa. the flight was heading to san francisco from sydney, australia. long flight, but it was diverted to new zealand where the man was arrested for complaining in the outburst over his seat. and first france told its workers they didn't have to answer e-mail at home. well, now in finland, people don't even have to go to work to get paid. a new program there giving $2,000 jobless people in finland selected at random about $600 a month. and you know what? the best part. no questions asked. pete: there you go. 600 bucks. well, it's a story
5:25 am
about faith, family, and football. >> i'm concerned about where my players spend eternity. >> bobby was bigger than life figure to me. >> he expected me to be the best. >> the seminoles are one away from winning the first school's national championship. abby: the life and legendary former college football coach now being presented in a new documentary called the bowden dynasty on the eve of the national championship. legend in the flesh. >> so that sound byte there, you're worried about where your players are going to spend eternity. >> well, i found out in the ladder years of coaching. i hate to say this. most of my boys did not have a father at home. they were raised by mothers or sisters or aunts or, you know. but there was a male figure missing. and so i felt like we as
5:26 am
coaches had to play that role in their life. >> you were their father figure. >> really because we might be the closest thing they ever had to a father. and i was raised with a father. and as long as i had him, i was the bravest kid in the neighborhood because i knew he was going to take care of me. and then i see these kids that never had that. never had a male figure in the home, so i felt like our coaching staff had to fill that role, you know? because just as i said. we might be the closest thing to a dad they ever have. abby: did you see them become better players as a result of that? did you see the difference when they ultimate found out they had a purpose, a value? >> no. doubt about it. it's kind of like being loose. if you're going to do something in a contest and something -- if you hang loose, they're going to do it. and i think once a guy the feeling that he is saved or however you would like to say it with, i think he performs a
5:27 am
lot better. pete: faith is so much of what you talk about and even in that clip, there was a clip of you praying with your team. it feels like almost weekly now instances of coaches being condemned or told that they can't pray with their players that that's not suitable. what do you say to that? >> that's probably about 2,500 years old that christians are going to be persecuted. too many people that don't like them. what you know i'm saying? and we see that happening all over the world. so if you're going to be a christian or if you're going to announce god. you're going to turn a lot of people off, you know? so what. i don't mind getting turned off for that. steve: what about this has turned off a number of people in the nfl. when colin kaepernick took a knee and refused to stand for the national anthem. what would happen if he was on your team? >> i would call him in and plead with him, son, i don't think it's wise to do that
5:28 am
when the star spangle barn is being played. there's too much blood that has been given for that star. >> but i think, bobby, people have made that argument to him, and he continues to take a knee. >> i can't do anything about that. you've got a choice. kick him off the team. i'm not sure how that would work. i guess they have to let it go. i was never faced with that. but i would talk to my team about the value of the flag and of our nation, you know? and i would try to give them a right to do that. give another time to do it. it's a nice cause. >> yeah. abby: was there ever any push back to that? when you talked about the american flag, when you talked about your faith, was there ever any push back to that? >> that's a very good question. when i recruited boys, i would talk to their parents. and i would say now, when your son comes to florida state, i'm going to take them to church. i'm going to take them to a white church. and then the next sunday i'm going to take them to a black
5:29 am
church. just y? because i just want them to say that they're welcome no matter what their race at our churches here in florida. and you take mamas and daddies. even if they're bad, they want their kids to be good. what you know i'm saying? so when i tell them that, they loved it. >> i'm sure they did. the kids that you recruited later on, has it changed how coaching interacting with younger people, millennials, has that changed at all how you interacted with them? >> oh, it has changed. has it changed. i started deposing 1953. i coached 57 years. now, in 1953, that was after the war. you would tell a kid anything, and they would do it. son, i want you to run into that wall as hard as you can. okay, coach. [laughter] nowadays, you have to sell them. >> yeah. >> if you could do this, you could become a great player, a professional football player. if you do this --
5:30 am
abby: true. pete: so it's a book and also a documentary. the book is available everywhere. >> yeah. >> bobby, thank you very much. abby: great to have you here. >> good to see you. take care. >> all right. for years, democrats have wined that president obama couldn't get anything done. now, are they doing the same thing with the trump administration? abby: and made this a household phrase. >> you're fired. go. abby: there's a new border and new catch phrase. our first look at arnold as the apprentice. next jack be nimble, jack be quick, jack knocked over a candlestick onto the shag carpeting... ...and his pants ignited into flames,
5:31 am

5:32 am
5:33 am
steve: well, the president-elect has been busy tweeting this morning. sent out three here, two of them. abby: people must remember that obamacare just doesn't work and is not affordable 116% increase in arizona. bill clinton called it crazy. that was one of them. >> that's one and right after it he tweeted again he said the democratic governor of minnesota said that the affordable care act,
5:34 am
obamacare, is no longer affordable, and it's lousy health care. steve: carl would probably agree it's not a great program. he joins us from down in austin, texas i believe. good morning, carl. >> good morning. abby: happy new year. >> happy new year to you all. i enjoyed the back and forth with osmond, and i want to say as somebody who went to high school in you told that i'm not aware that i dated any member of either the huntsman or osmond family. in fact, i'm pretty positive i didn't. steve: you're the only one. >> there were so few dates during that period of time that i think i would recall it. abby: oh, i love it. now you have nancy pelosi pleading with republicans saying give obamacare a second look. do we have that sound? >> we have a tweet, but we do have a tweet that nancy pelosi has sent out yesterday i believe on obamacare. she said "people must remember -- well, that's not the tweet. that's the donald trump tweet. she said everyone has better
5:35 am
health care and more opportunities with obamacare. so disregard what's actually happened. what do you make of the enslot of this stuff? >> yeah. nancy pelosi said we have to pass the bill to know what's in the bill. we now know, premiums have skyrocketed when they go down $2,500 per person. millions of people lost their coverage when told if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. millions lost access to their doctor when we were told you could keep your doctor. we were told it would generate this much more coverage and it has generated this much more coverage, and they said it cost this much, and it costs this much. my sense is that they'll partially repeal most of it quickly. and they will replace much of it this year, but it's going to be a long-term project to undo the damage that the affordable care act has done to the health care system. >> it has done a lot of damage. my daughter has obamacare, and i don't think she wound up spending -- because the deductible was so high, she
5:36 am
had to pay -- >> the deductibles were so high. >> she didn't get reimbursed a dime last year from obamacare. so, carl, go forward, we had frank luntz on a couple of hours ago, and he did a poll and a plurality of people said they didn't mind how long it took, as long as it got fixed right. >> i think that's right. people understand this is a big, complex issue. they want it done, and they the president done right. and the congress can do that. they can send the legislation that begins the process refuse he peeling the most egregious parts of it this year. and puts us on a path to a new system. the secretary of hhl, health and human services can do a lot on its own to undo a lot of the bad things in the affordable care act. there's a 400-page description of what has to be in each and every insurance policy under the affordable care act. he has the statutory power given to him by congress took
5:37 am
care of and rewrite it, and he can turn it into two pages allowing more options, more alternatives, fewer mandates, and that could be the first thing that could be done to really drop down to the cost of rising health insurance by changing the so-called essential benefits. abby: and the reason we're talking so much about this, it all goes back to president obama's legacy. >> sure. abby: he's hoping it continues on with his legacy. you know all about legacy. how will we be talking about president obama now years from now? what will that be? >> yeah. that's going to be left up to the historianians. but i do think the affordable care act is his major domestic initiative, and it's a disaster. the stimulus bill did not meet the growth and job creation numbers that the administration used to sell it in 2009. i think on the domestic side, he's going to be having seen, having had a few minor accomplishes and major failures. and on the foreign policy side, i have to tell you. this president, the new president and the president
5:38 am
who succeeds him and him, are all likelihood going to be dealing with the failed debris of the failed administration whether it is the middle east or dealing with russia, our failure to make the full pivot to asia and back it up with muscle. >> carl, today, 150 congress sworn in, but democrats have announced up to eight cabinet picks that they're going to oppose in what looks like an unprecedented attempt to block not potential nominees. have you seen anything of this size and scope you think they can try to drag it out all the way into march as they talked about. how do you see this unfolding? >> yeah. look, they can. if they want to be obstructionists, they can use the center rules to slow this process up some and delay president trump being able to put his administration in power and having people in the agencies running these things and moving forward with his policies. they can do that. let's look back, though, as what republicans did in a similar position in 2009.
5:39 am
in 2009, the senate of the united states approved eight of president obama's nominees on the first two days that he was president. the 20th and the 21st. they approved one more on the 23rd. most of these were incidentally by voice votes. agricultural, va, hud, homeland security, transportation, all of those done without even a roll call vote. by the 26th, they did one more. february 2nd, they did the attorney general who had a controversial set of hearings. they approved him. the 24th, they approved the labor secretary even though there had been a problem with her husband's unpaid taxes. and then the last two members of the cabinet are march 24th and that's because the commerce secretary was nominated on the 23rd of february that went through two different people before that that with drew themselves. and then the last member of the cabinet is april 28th. that's the hhs secretary who
5:40 am
is on the third of february tom dash withdraws because it turns out he hasn't paid his taxes. and they nominated on the 2nd of march, and she's approved five weeks later. so most of the cabinet is approved pretty quickly without much controversy. >> well, let's hope it's that way this time as well. carl down in austin, texas with hisser racable whiteboard. you must have stock in staples or something. >> darn it. i didn't buy stock in a whiteboard company before i started using them. the biggest financial mistake in my life. abby: i'm going to text my mom and see if you guys went on a date back then. >> your mom was too tool kuehl for me. i was the complete nerd. no chance in heck. abby: i love it. good to see you this morning. >> thank you. >> let's go over some headlines this morning. >> good morning to all of you. important story to bring you. this one coming out of colorado, and that's where police need your help. there's a massive search this
5:41 am
morning for a young colorado body who wandered away from his home, his mother heartbroken pleading for his return >> please help me find him. >> her little boy is just 6 years old. his name is david puckett. we're told he was wearing a thin coat. disappeared in aurora, colorado in below freezing temperatures. police say the boy has a slight learning disability, and they claim he has wandered off at least two times. if you've seen that little boy, call police. there's a 2-year-old boy pinned underneath that dresser and his twin brother comes to the rescue. we want to let you know that both children are okay. but you can see that 2-year-old as he struggles to move the dresser off of the dresser. the parents were downstairs at the time.
5:42 am
they discovered this footage after they saw the tipped dresser. they posted this online as a warning. we're trying to find what company sells the dresser, but good message to parents. and the phrase we all know. >> you're fired. go. >> well, now there's a new boss bringing a new catch phrase to the boardroom, and here it is. >> it was a risky thing to do. therefore you're terminated. >> that's perfect. arnold schwarzenegger the terminator adding his own style to the new season perform and, by the way, when they get terminated, they go to a chopper. the helicopter picks them up spanish perfect. i like it. steve: all right. straight ahead on this tuesday, hillary
5:43 am
clinton may have lost the election but president obama says he could have beaten trump. >> if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized the american people to get behind it. >> doesn't buy it, why he says it's time for the country and the party to move on. and he joins us next. abby: come on in. as a control enthusiast, i'm all-business when i travel... even when i travel... for leisure. so i go national, where i can choose any available upgrade in the aisle - without starting any conversations- -or paying any upcharges. what can i say? control suits me.
5:44 am
go national. go like a pro.
5:45 am
5:46 am
. >> well, he complained hard for hillary clinton, and she lost, but president obama insisting he could have beaten president-elect trump. >> i am confident in this vision because i'm confident that if i -- if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized a majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> well, now one frustrated democrat says he doesn't buy that, and it's the topic of brian dean new on he joins us live here on the east coast from the west coast. good morning to you. >> very good day to you. steve: so there you've got barack obama saying, you know, i could have won third term. >> yeah. well, here's a couple of things. one, could he have won? and secondly, would democrats
5:47 am
would have wanted him to win a second time? you know, hillary clinton wrapped herself around president obama's legacy, you know? she promoted herself really as the next third term. and the american people considered that. and they rejected it. unfortunately, for my party. but the american people spoke. and, in fact, she did get a majority of voters. she, in fact, won the popular vote but that's not how our democracy works. so i don't understand the president's louisa hodge here and i don't think in any changed election he would have won. steve: and now you look what happened. they had some do-overs. let's put our hopes on the recount. >> sure. steve: okay. he stole it. now the russians as well. what do you make of the fact -- and we've got a big exclusive interview tonight, julian sits down in person with sean saying that the russians did not give us the wiki leak documents. but that's what your party's
5:48 am
pushing. to delegitimatize president trump. >> well, i do believe that the russians had a clear hand in this, and i think as a former cia officer, i trust my former colleagues in their assessment. but i do believe that at the end of the day the american people spoke, despite or even because of all of these terrible things that, in fact, did happen that the russians pushed, they still -- american people spoke, and it was their will. president obama, in fact, said that they after the election that the will of the american people had been reflected in that vote, and i think that was true then and true now. steve: and of course you've got donald trump on the a couple of days saying he doesn't trust computers and they're all hackable. you should know. you were at the cia. >> yeah. in fact, one of the great jokes we had at the agency, we would ask each other what's the most computer you can find and the answer is a broken one. it's true. i think the president is right to say that the -- our system is potentially hackable.
5:49 am
steve: all right. brian dean, read over at >> thank you. steve: meanwhile isis uses them as a weapon of mass murder, but now one president is making kill switches to stop truck massacres like the one in berlin and france. but is it a good idea? we're going to debate that next. check in with martha, back at work this morning. >> hello there. >> happy to see you this morning. happy 2017 at home. inaugural now 17 days away, what he's going to say this week about russia. everybody is watching that closely. also majority leader kevin mccarthy here to break news on regulations and what they will roll back first in the battle over obamacare. all very big, very important topics for 2017. bill and i will see you at the top of the hour.
5:50 am
5:51 am
5:52 am
5:53 am
pete: every time an incident? happens terrorism or otherwise, you hear about gun control. what about truck control? the british government trying to prevent truck attacks by proposing a vehicle kill switch. it would be able to stop any truck in the uk by remote. but would you let your government take the wheel? here to debate it, retired chicago police sergeant peter and former state department senior adviser morgan wright. morgan, i'm going to start with you. the idea of a kill switch to prevent someone hell-bent with a vehicle. is that practical? >> is it practical? that's going to be -- that's the toughest part to figure out now, pete. the policy is the biggest part. when are you going to deploy
5:54 am
it, how are you going to deploy it? ing building the technology is not an issue. but deploying it the rules of engagement are extremely important. who triggers it, when do they trigger it. and can they get to the point to trigger it fast enough to stop that vehicle from attacking. pete: so you think it's a good idea? >> i think it's a good idea. >> pete, the practicality of a kill switch. first of all, what's your take? >> i think it's a great idea, but it's impractical and cost prohibitive. pete: how do you deal with what vehicles, when it's triggered. and do we want the government having control over our vehicles? >> well, no. the government's getting control of everything, so you don't want to give them control over that. but the most important thing if you're in a chase or you're chasing this truck, chases take one to three minutes and usually end in an accident.
5:55 am
the people bailing out of the car, or they're boxed in somewhere. so who is going to activity that charge and how are they going to activity it if it's a matter of doing it through the communication center, you have to have a license plate. you have to have the information on the truck. you're chasing somebody, you've got to worry about keeping your eye on them and your partner's got to relay the street addresses. so how are you going to turn that car off? pete: morgan, i have to ask. is this just treating the symptom again? rather than saying we're confronting a radical islamist enemy trying to kill us. we're trying to say turn off the vehicles. >> pete, i'm definitely with you. i've been talking about it's about the narrative, it's about going after islam and the elements of islam that attack the united states. but on the other hand, we also have to go after the tools they use, and this is one of the tools they use. and right now trucks are heavily regulated, pete. drivers are regulated, everything. this is not something new. the question is if this starts becoming a tool, then what is our response?
5:56 am
pete: sure. >> what if they steal the truck? we can't always depend on streaming background of drivers. pete: you're a cop in chicago where murder rate is off the charts, and they're always talking about the tools and guns yet the violence continues. kill switches in vehicles. isn't that just like saying gun control is what will solve everything? >> gun control -- we have the strictest gun laws in the country in chicago and that didn't work. it hasn't worked. pete: so would that stop a suicide bomber? >> if the suicide bomber grabs a truck driver, kills them, they pull the truck into a place, they throw the bomb in the truck, they turn around drive the truck in any neighborhood and blow it up, by the time you realize that that truck is gone, the truck's already blown up. pete: sure. >> so i don't see how you're going to effectively police that trucking industry, and you can't just put kill devices on every truck.
5:57 am
companies -- for $100 or less, you could put a kill switch in your own car so it doesn't get stolen. how many people do that? >> when the government tries to do it, it becomes a massive overreach. peter, morgan, we have to leave it right there. more i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me
